PSOE de El Ejido supports the practice of sports activities in public spaces.

Thus, the Socialists criticize that in the municipality the development of these sports activities is limited, to a great extent, to closed places, at the time that they show their complaint that the spaces for leisure are "very scarce".

That is why the proposal in sports and leisure of the socialist ejà © rica goes through the creation of spaces that generate opportunities for meeting, social relationship and in which young people develop their talent in the different sports disciplines.

In this way, citizen participation will be generated and alternatives will be offered to families in different places, spread across the different neighborhoods and nuclei.

Thus, the proposals of the PSOE for the municipality go through to establish plans of regeneration and rehabilitation of public spaces, buildings and neighborhoods, to plan and articulate zones of leisure and sport, and to eliminate architectural barriers, in addition to building a citizen and business experience.

Also, one of the most important points in terms of leisure and sport of the PSOE is the recovery of the Municipal Park project of the Cañada de Ugíjar, where they would also create urban and neighborhood gardens.

Likewise, the Socialists propose building healthy parks in which different sports activities can be put into practice, including modalities such as parkour or calisthenics, as well as facilitating the use of existing sports areas and ensuring a more demanding degree of maintenance.

To this we can add a beach soccer field in Balerma and a pool in Santa María del Águila.


Sport and sports are fundamental in the personal and social development for IU-Equo because of the health benefits but also because of its educational, egalitarian and socializing nature, becoming an integration tool.

In this line, this formation of lefts aims to enable the expansion of the municipal park as a space for recreational and sports use, as well as completing the network of sports facilities in the densest population centers.
